Chinese Wine: Culture, Obstacles, and the Future

Don’t miss our next webinar. Join Cori Solomon and David Nershi along with guest host Dr. Clinton Lee, executive director of the Asia Pacific Wine and Spirit Institute.

With more than 1.9 million acres under vine, China has recently become one of the world leaders in grape and wine production. Recent figures place China as the number two country, after Spain, for vineyard acreage. China has a long history of wine production, reaching back several thousand years, but it is only recently that the consumption of fine wine has become widespread. The country now has more than 500 wineries with dry red wines being the dominant style produced. Our special guest will be international wine lecturer, writer, and critic Dr. Clinton Lee.

Dr. Lee is a visiting professor at the North-West University College of Oenology China. This is China’s only oenology institution. Dr. Lee has many years of experience in the wine industry, including attaining the Wine Spirit and Education Diploma and Certified International Educator from London, UK, the Certified Specialist of Wine, Certified Specialist of Spirits designation and the French Wine Scholar (USA). He is a Certified Sherry Educator awarded by the Consejo De Regulador (Spain) and is a wine judge with the Hong Kong International Wine Judge Association. He is the founder of the Asia Pacific Wine and Spirit Institute (APWASI), an online wine education platform that is dedicated to providing wine knowledge across borders. APWASI provides 27 certified online wine and spirit courses. Its mission is to promote cultural diversity through studying the history, people and culture of wines through online certified wine courses.
